Peter Tabori trained under Erno Goldfinger, but is perhaps best remembered for his part in Camden’s progressive social housing policy of the 1970s. Indeed, this Peter Tabori-designed modernist maisonette in Highgate New Town, London N19 is a key part of it.
It dates to 1973 and as you might have guessed, is no longer social at all – this is a private sale. Peter Tabori was behind the distinctive Highgate New Town development, which even now, still looks futuristic in its construction. Not so once you get inside though.
It’s described as a ‘spacious’ maisonette, with the duplex apartment offering flexible living accommodation and a good standard of finish. Something of a blank canvas, if you like.
You’ll find a 37 ft kitchen/reception room opening onto a south facing patio, two double bedrooms (both opening onto a private garden), a further bedroom/study, a family bathroom and a utility room. There’s also ‘ample storage’ if you have plenty of bits and pieces. That garden needs a bit of work though.
These places are apparently now sought after by fans of the era and style, so this might not hang around on the market too long. Although the £489,950 might well put off all but the most serious.
